||Teagarden/Rosolino - Great Trombones DVD (1962) |
Although it's been a part of jazz since the genre's beginnings, few artists have mastered the trombone in quite the way many have made magic on other horns. Two legendary trombonists who did manage to transcend, Frank Rosolini and Weldon Leo "Jack" Teagarden, are highlighted on this release.
NTSC/Region 0. This DVD contains rare filmed performances from two of the greatest exponents of Jazz trombone in musical history! Frank Rosolino (featured in a 1962 performance) was one of the best known names in the West Coast due both to his exceptional technique and his warm personality. Jack Teagarden (from 1952) was a widely loved figure, both as a trombonist and as a singer, from his recording debut in 1927 until his death. Unlike the rough sound generally attributed to the trombone, Teagarden created a unique and melancholic voice on his instrument that would forever change the sound of the jazz trombone. As a bonus we have included a complete 1939 short film presenting pianist/composer/singer Hoagy Carmichael playing his tunes with Jack Teagarden and his orchestra. Oh!vation.
